Plus alacritty looks great and is much faster and lighter than most other terminal emulators, ripgrep is a great replacement for grep and can be a serious improvement when you are searching through millions of lines on thousands of giant files. To mention just the two of them...

Alacritty is full of render issues and missing features. It's fast because it barely does anything, and doesn't even do it correct. Just check the ever growing laundry list of issues it has on Github.

With that said, it's a very interesting project. Especially with regards to its rendering engine.

I only use ripgrep these days.
